ENCA news, a South African TV channel, says the crash took place in 2010 and prosecutors say Pistorius' reckless driving led to the death a motorcyclist.

Carl's lawyer recently told the station that Carl "deeply regrets the accident," but was adamant his client was not drunk at the the time of the collision.

"There is no doubt that [he] is innocent and the charge will be challenged in court," the lawyer said, echoing the sentiments of Oscar Pistorius' attorney.

Carl's trial was set to begin last Thursday - the same day Oscar was freed on bail after an explosive week of testimony - but it was postponed until next month.

Oscar's trial likely will not be for a couple of months. Even more incredibly, the lead detective in Oscar's case, Hilton Botha, is also charged with murder.

A South African Olympic sprinter who won global acclaim for his achievements as a double amputee, Oscar Pistorius is charged with murdering Reeva Steenkamp.

He claims that he shot her by accident, believing she was an intruder; prosecutors allege he knew exactly what he was doing and that it was premeditated.
